Yes, but if it does happen it's most likely going to be within a few weeks on either end of the start and end date, not in say mid-February.

Of course, but it is not common.

Hurricanes need warm water to form. The water warms up in the summer months, hence why hurricane season runs from June through November and not the other months.

I've pasted information from an article by the Sun Sentinel's Ken Kaye, who has been covering hurricanes for more than 25 years.

Several December storms formed during the hyperactive 2005 season and I recall that a few of the forecast models had them threatening South Florida, but it didn't happen, thank goodness.

What are the earliest/latest dates a hurricane has affected South Florida?
The earliest was on June 17, 1906; the system angled northeast across the southern tip of the state as a Category 1. The latest was on Nov. 4, 1935, known as the Yankee Hurricane because after developing near Bermuda it approached South Florida from the northeast and struck Miami Beach.
What are the earliest/latest dates a major hurricane has struck here?
The earliest was on Aug 16 in both 1871 and 1888. In more recent times, Hurricane Andrew struck on Aug. 24 in 1992. The latest was Category 3 Hurricane King, which struck the Keys and downtown Miami on Oct. 17, 1950, causing severe damage across the region. More recently, Hurricane Wilma hit southwest Florida as a Category 3 on Oct. 24, 2005, but weakened to Category 2 by the time it reached South Florida.

No, it is impossible for a destructive hurricane to hit south Florida outside of the humid, miserable season. And yes 2013 was a dud just like I had predicted. It has been over 21 years since we have had a powerful storm hit Dade county and over 80 years since a major storm hit the most populated part of Miami.

tallrick - I agree that 2013 is a dud and you predicted it. Kudos to you for that. I also doubt we will get any type of tropical storm or hurricane for the remainder of this season. In you rmidn when does the humid, miserable season run? Hurricane season is June 1 -November 30th. In my mind the humid, miserable season can run longer than that on both sides.

Hurricane season always seems to end with the first powerful cold front. That is what swept Wilma away. While we can get days of heat and humidity in the winter here, the miserable weather is broken up by cool periods. Now here's the interesting part, we have had tornadoes and even the famous "no name" storm during those periods of the year.

We just got the first powerful cold front.... So I guess it is done. I've lived here for about 40 years -- and can't say I really paid attention to cold fronts and the end of the season. I used to relish Oct. 1 coming around, but Wilma now makes that Nov. 1...
